Golang / Go Job: Software Engineer

Docker Inc

Software Engineer at Docker Inc

San Francisco, California, United States 🇺🇸   (Posted Feb 6 2014)
About the company
At Docker Inc, we believe that containerization will soon become the next big thing, the next tool which will be part of every developer and sysadmin toolbox. What's "containerization"? The name comes the LXC technology (Linux Containers), and the technique is also known as "Lightweight Virtualization".

That's why we recently launched Docker (http://www.docker.io/), an Open Source tool enabling anyone to run those Linux Containers very easily. Containers boot 1000x faster than virtual machines; their disk and memory footprint are also much lower; and they work on virtually all current platforms (from physical servers to public cloud instances). We think that they are the future of virtualization, and will soon become ubiquitous.

Convinced? Then fork the repo on github (https://github.com/dotcloud/docker) and have a look at the code. Not convinced? Then check the website (http://www.docker.io/), which contains more details, demos, and screencasts. Excited about this? Then join our engineering team!

working on some server-side applications;

participate in product discussions, influence the roadmap, and take ownership and responsibility over new projects to make them happen.

Skills & requirements
You can qualify if you...:
